an afternoon at the palace {taylor stitch}


You might recall from this post a few months back, that I'm trying my hand at this whole hopping back and forth across the country thing. Between the flights, packing, unpacking, security lines and hitting rush hour traffic en route to JFK, I have to admit, it's proven to be more exhausting than I originally thought. 

But I'll also admit, it's definitely worth it when I get to see warm, friendly faces upon arriving back in San Francisco and that familiar, potato patch fog-ridden skyline that I've come to love (and miss!). You might have spied on Instagram that I recently went back last week for a quick work visit -- which was then parlayed into an excuse to cruise up the Highway 1 coastline over the weekend. Before hopping out of town, I had a chance to catch up with the guys at Taylor Stitch to pick up a few oh-so-necessary pieces for the road trip, including this new striped gauze blouse which hit their workshop yesterday (get clicking right this way to pre-order yours now) and a little denim for good measure (more to come on that next week). 

Of course, when Mike suggested shooting at the Palace of Fine Arts, I was more than game (ahem, clearly, I'm a sucker for that place). I just love how these shots remind me of certain afternoons of mine in that city by the bay: blanket and magazines in tow, a jacket tucked away in case the fog rolled in and perhaps an impromptu visit to Swensen's later in the afternoon for an ice cream pick-me-up. 

So when the in-flight wifi is slower than dial up speed or I'm stuck in the middle seat again, I think I'll just remind myself of afternoons at the palace and smile to myself before ordering a glass of wine.
